Child admits to Ashton Kutcher swatting prank
Mar 11, 2013, 22:23 GMT
A 12-year-old boy has admitted to targeting Ashton Kutcher's home in a burglary prank.
The prank last October cost the taxpayers of Los Angeles more than $10,000 in wasted police manpower and other resources when law enforcement rushed to the star's Arrowhead Drive mansion after receiving a distress call from a person who claimed they were the victim of a violent home invasion robbery.
According to TMZ, the youngster 'confessed to two felony counts in connection with swatting pranks [a deliberate attempt to trick an emergency service into dispatching a response team] against Ashton and a bank, including making a false report in an emergency and computer intrusion'.
It was previously claimed that the boy lives with his mother in what has been described as an 'incredibly dysfunctional' home and refused to attend school recently because he prefers communicating with other hackers on his computer but arrangements are now being made to move him into a more stable foster home.
Authorities are said to be eager for the troubled boy to receive therapy rather than a punishment for his crimes.
Ashton - who is currently dating Mila Kunis - was not at home at the time of the incident, but rushed home immediately.
The Hollywood funnyman purchased the $3.6 million mansion following his split from Demi Moore.
